    Hello! New to this, I have 1 chicken, as my other rhode island died at the vets, trying to remove a egg that was stuck, I have also 2 chickens that are my grandson's he has dumped off on me. My question is the rhode island red, has a lot of loose bowel movements, what could be wrong?

    You can also type 'runny' or 'watery poop' into the BYC search box and explore old threads. I wouldn't recommend doing any of this on a full stomach, however! ;). Best of luck!
